My Weekly Reader December 1957

  December 2, 1957

As we continue on, the U.S. does have a response to Sputnik(s) planned, The Army's Jupiter C launcher.
 Lots of space news now.  The show of strenth is at hand and we will join the race in earnest.

If this seems like a lot for 1 issue it is because during the same week they would have different Weekly Readers for different grade levels.

 December 9, 1957
 In the December 9th issue they had a supplement about the Moon. Obviously our next stop once we finished getting ahead of the Russians.

  1. I especially like the art at the top & bottom of the Dec 9, 1957 front page--3rd from the bottom.
